Our hip surgery procedures

  • Anterior approach
    The surgeon reaches the hip joint from the front (anterior) using a small incision. This allows the surgeon to work between the gluteus muscles that attach to the pelvis and femur.

  • Posterior approach
    The surgeon uses a curved incision on the side and back (posterior) of the hip. This approach may provide the surgeon a more direct view of the hip joint. Your surgeon will discuss your specific circumstances and help you decide which treatment and approach is best for you.

  • MAKO® robotic-arm assisted surgery
    Available for partial and total knee and hip replacement surgeries, this technology uses 3-D modeling to help your doctor create a personalized surgical plan and allows for precise placement of the implant while preserving more healthy bone, tissue and ligaments. Mako is offered at Sharp Coronado Hospital and at Sharp Grossmont Hospital.
